Processing Plant Uses Pre-filtration To Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) Filters With Pep Active Media

A processing plant in Minnesota faced operational challenges due to ceramic dust from the manufacturing process passing through their clarifier, even with flocculent addition. Before installation of the Pep Active media, the GAC was backwashing every 48 hours, and after installation, backwash occurs approximately every 15 days. Read the full case study to learn how the backwash frequency of the GAC was reduced by a factor of approximately 6.
